I didn't measure it exactly, but here's an estimate of how much of each ingredient.

Drink up!

Blueberry & Peach Smoothie

by Brown Vegan

Ingredients (Serves 4)

  • 1/2 cup frozen peaches
  • 1 medium ripe banana, peeled
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon agave nectar (optional)

Instructions

Add all the ingredients to a blender and blend, baby, blend!

Sidenote: If you don't have a high-powered blender, blend each fruit one at a time with the cup of almond milk.

If necessary, add more almond milk to get everything moving.

Strawberry & Banana Smoothie Recipe

strawberrysmoothie2.jpg

If you've been following me for a while, you know that I love my vegan junk food.

In fact, I'm working on a video with my son Elijah to share some our favorite vegan junk food. Stay tuned for that!

Since I often find myself eating a little too much junk food (*shaking my head*), I try to keep plenty of fresh fruit and non-dairy milk in the house for smoothies.

They make for a fast, filling snack (or meal replacer) any time of day....without the guilt.

3 simple ingredients-Strawberries, banana & almond milk.

Naturally Sweet.

Delicious.

I rarely add extra sweetener to my fruit smoothies, but a couple of dates or agave nectar would be nice if you need it. 

My son made this smoothie for me the other day. He loves drinking them just as much as I do.

Thanks, Jason!

What do you put in your smoothies?

Simplest Smoothie EVER

One of the ladies I follow on Instagram mentioned that she's doing a bananas detox for a few days. Even though I have no interest in doing that myself, I liked the idea of a making the simplest smoothie ever.

All you need is 2-3 overripe bananas (you want a lot of brown spots), a little water and about 8 cubes of ice.

Breakfast is served!

This smoothie is so refreshing, filling and super sweet.

Let me know if you try it. I'm going to experiment with adding chia gel to mine. :-)

Chocolate Smoothie Recipe

I know what you're thinking.... 

Spinach in a smoothie? Hear me out! Spinach is perfect in a smoothie because you don't taste it. Seriously.  

You get all the benefits of spinach in this smoothie but also enjoy the sweetness of the dates, banana, and cocoa powder.

All three of my boys love this recipe and request it often. If you've never had greens in your smoothie, you may want to start with half of the measurement in the recipe (listed at the end of this post) and gradually move up to more greens. Swiss chard is another leafy green that isn't as hard to detect in a smoothie.

If you try this recipe, please update me. :-)
